#1 Queen Elizabeth II
HM Queen Elizabeth was a secret Hammers fan for years but was forced to admit her love for the team when she overhead a member of her staff praising Milwall FC who are West Ham’s biggest rivals.
The Queen was a big fan of legendary West Ham manager Ron Greenwood who led the club to numerous trophies during his 13 years in charge and she even awarded him the CBE for his services to football back in 1981. You cannot get a bigger fan than the Queen.
Well done West Ham!
